The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has announced that its next Powder Metallurgy Summer School will take place in Vienna, Austria, July 2-6 2018. The popular course is open to young scientists, designers and engineers looking to gain a broader knowledge and understanding of the Powder Metallurgy process and applications.
The five-day residential event consists of a range of lectures given by PM experts drawn from both industry and academia. Topics to be covered will include the manufacture of metal powders, powder compaction, MIM, modelling, sintering, Hot Isostatic Pressing and Additive Manufacturing. Participants will be able to discuss and solve problems as well as get hands-on experience of various PM processes.
The Summer School is designed for young graduate designers, engineers and scientists from disciplines such as materials science, design, engineering, manufacturing or metallurgy. Graduates under 35 and who have obtained their degree from a European institution are eligible to apply. Registration to the Summer School is expected to open in early 2018.
